Deploying web application

What is a good way to deploying web application (new file, modified files)? Right now I am just using in VS2010, go to Website, Copy Web Site, connect to remote server, and update file one at a time? Is there a way to just update dll or hide vb code or what is a good practice?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
